Seinfeld also directed Quinn's Drama Desk Award-nominated earlier solo show, Long Story Short, which played on Broadway in 2010-11.

Colin Quinn The New York Story is described thus: "Colin bemoans the rise and fall of his hometown, the city formally known as NY from its modest beginnings as Dutch outpost to the hipsters of modern Williamsburg to the vermin below and above ground. Quinn is once again at his satirical best, taking aim at the prejudices, paranoias and peculiarities that make New York City the crossroads of the world."

The show has set design by Sara C. Walsh, costume design by Kristen Buckels and lighting design by Sarah Lurie.

Tickets can be purchased by visiting or calling OvationTix at (866) 811-4111.


Quinn began his career in comedy clubs and has been seen on television in "Remote Control," "Saturday Night Live" and "Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn." His film work includes "A Night at the Roxbury," "Comedian" and "Grown Ups."

Quinn's one-man show Sanctifying Grace began Off-Broadway and transferred to Broadway as Colin Quinn-An Irish Wake in 1998. His one-man show Colin Quinn Long Story Short, which played Broadway in 2010, received a Drama Desk nomination as well as an Emmy Award for the HBO broadcast of the play.
